INDIANAPOLIS -- Many people use running marathons as ways to stay in shape, or as life events to remember with loved ones.

For a couple known for their weight loss, it's both. 

Kristine and Josh, known for their weight loss on Instagram, posted that they were running in the Indy Mini Marathon on Saturday.

After the mini, Josh got down on one knee and proposed to Kristine, who said yes.


What an unforgettable day! I was at a loss for words earlier but now that I've had a chance to settle a little, more info about today! @thesteeleproject and I completed our first half marathon! I can't even begin to explain how amazing I felt during the run. Our time wasn't what I had hoped, but we were in this together and there's no way we would cross that finish line separately! I swore I'd complete this half and be happy and hang up my running shoes ? but now I'm eager to see how much time I can shave off! So we cross the finish line and Josh gets down on one knee to propose! Apparently all of you guys totally expected this but I had NO idea! Honest! Funny story behind it all but in any case knew it'd happen eventually, but never expected it to be today! Pure shock. Leave it to Josh to do it with so many people around ? This has been the absolute best day ever! #roadtoindymini has come to an end, but this is not the end of races for me! Thanks for the outpouring of support & love! ??
